Homeschooling, Work, Getting Ready to Go...

This week has been busy as usual. I took James to speech at the school on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:30am. It's 1/2 an hour on Monday and Wednesday and an hour on Friday. The other kids and I went to the nearby library while we waited to go pick him up.

Monday, we had our art class at the Manlius library, followed by playtime in the gym that's in the building. On Wednesday, we had our P.E. at the YMCA (1/2 hour of swim and 45 minutes of gym). Thursday, we went to the zoo with a bunch of other homeschoolers, 15 children in all.

The kids had fun this week with their Gladiator activity kit that we got from the Rainbow Resource catalog. It came with a plastic gladiator and his gear, a paper Colossium to make, a map, a little poster and a book. We're on chapter 23 in Story of the World this week.

I've been busy getting ready for my trip to Oregon next week (all alone!) to the Midwifery Today conference. I fly out Tuesday morning and come back to NY the following Monday. Tim will be here with the kids (still working, as we have lovely babysitters). I can't decide if the kids will get almost no schoolwork done when I'm away, or if our one amazing babysitter will keep them right on track (pretty likely). I'm really looking forward to the conference; it's something I've wanted to attend for years and, thanks to my wonderful husband, I'm finally getting to go.
